Consider the two sentences, do they mean the same thing ?

(A) Byron admired Dryden more than he did Wordsworth
(B) Byron admired Dryden more than Wordsworth did

(A) is clear. Byron admires Dryden to a greater degree than he admires Wordsworth.

In (B), the author had meant to mean the same thing, but I read it as Byron admires Dryden more than Wordsworth admired Dryden.

What do you guys think?

I also agree....

The meaning of the second sentence is different from that of the first one...
